Additionally, Dr. Jones is an assistant professor in the Dell Medical School Department of Neurology.

Dr. Jones earned her doctorate in clinical psychology with a specialization in neuropsychology from Drexel University. She completed an internship in pediatric neuropsychology at UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and a fellowship in pediatric neuropsychology at Kennedy Krieger Institute and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She is actively involved in training of neuropsychology graduate students, interns, and postdoctoral fellows.

Dr. Jones works with patients admitted to the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit at Dell Children’s Medical Center, where she assesses and monitors patients’ cognitive recovery and helps them and their families understand the relationship between brain injury and function in a way that helps to improve functioning at home, school, and in the community.
